in 2008 against john mccain, who seemed so frenetic with the financial crisis. obama, mr. cool, mr. laid back. looks like he is calm in a crisis. you're saying this is a different obama we're seeing? >> yes. when the sun is shining, reality is different. what happened is that we heard the mantra for a long time now. we always knew this would be a close race. well, maybe his handlers did but obama never did. you have to believe inside. now came denver. he began to understand, this is reality. he is in danger of losing, and everything that supported him, all of that sense of vast crowds, imagine what happened yesterday in colorado. i you took a look admit mitt's immense crowds, that evehicled the same tremendous passion that obama had, only it was mitt romney. so you have this enraged president. and it comes out he can't stop, just as biden cannot stop, you cannot stop behaving inappropriately. >> dan. >> the president's campaign but out a 20-page pamphlet. >> a big part of this week, saying, i do have an agenda, responding to the romney criticism that he doesn't for the second term. >> ex
returned to washington. mr. obama left central florida this morning where he was going to attend a campaign rally. just moments ago, he arrived back in d.c. this is andrews air force base. you can see the president getting into his special car along with secret service agent, making their way back to the white house. these are live pictures, you're saying? no. he's driving toward the white house right now. you can see how much security the president actually needs around him. good thing there's no traffic today. everybody stayed at home. dan lothian is at the white house. good morning, dan. the president decided to come back from florida and canceled another campaign stop as well. >> reporter: that's right. pulling out of florida not only today but also tomorrow, stops in ohio. he was supposed to have another event in virginia tonight. also in wisconsin and colorado, those events the president will not be attending because the white house said it was important for the president to be back here at the white house to monitor the ongoing situation with sandy. in fact, we were told by white hou
to washington to focus on the storm. at the midday briefing mr. obama insisted the campaign was not on his mind. >> i'm worried about the impact on families, and i'm worried about the impact on our first responders. i'm worried about the impact on our economy and on transportation. you know, the election will take care of itself next week. >> reporter: meanwhile, for much of monday mitt romney tried to walk a fine line, balancing campaigning in ohio and iowa with compassion for storm victims. in ohio he appealed for americans to put politics aside. >> we've faced these kind of challenges before, and as we have, as soon as americans come together, and this looks like another time when we need to come together, all across the country, even here in ohio. >> reporter: still, romney did not entirely abandon politics. >> the people of the entire nation are counting on ohio because my guess is -- my guess is that if ohio votes me in as president, i'll be the next president of the united states. >> reporter: both candidates have cancelled all of their own public events for today. the president was supp
to where it was when mr. obama took office as president. in january of 2009, it was 7. %. there was a stimulus in february 2009. hundreds of billions of dollars spent into the economy, the unemployment rate kept rising to 10% before moving slowly lower now to 7.8%. again the forecast is for it to pick up in october to 7.9%. let's take a look at the job creation trends. that's the other part of this story. you can see when the president took office hundreds of thousands of jobs being lost every month. that was the financial crisis and the recession. then it has been slow, very slow incremental gains in jobs since then over the past couple of years. there has been job creation. month after month after month. but some months have not been even robust enough to absorb new entrants into the workforce. that's where it gets political you guys. the question is, has this been good enough, has the president made it better or worse, and could mitt romney do better? that's what everyone will decide on tuesday. >> that's what they'll be fighting about starting today at about 8:30 t
a version of chinese state-directed capitalism by the way of stimulus. mr. obama might squeak by. he has in addition to incumbency and a vestige of likability, a candidate who found his stride late in the campaign. but a second term will mean four years of spent ideas packaged in shopworn rhetoric to be shoved down the throat by a president who has nothing politically to lose. i'm not sure that's fair. would you agree with that? i don't think so. >> i would agree that the president's exhausted intellectually when it comes to what he plans to do for the next our years. i think there's a big question mark, though, also over what mitt romney would do over the next four years. only thing we know for sure is mitt romney's saying he's going to cut taxes and barack obama says he's going to raise taxes and neither one of these -- >> that's the argument in the messaging out on the campaign trail. but when you look at what this president has done -- >> no, no, no, no -- just stop. >> what? >> just stop. i'm talking about the future. you want to talk about the past. if i say the president's intelle
-storm opportunism. citizens in the northeast aren't turning on their tvs if they have electricity to hear mr. obama opine about subways letting. they're tuning in to hear governor chris christie talk about damage to the jersey shore, mayor bloomberg tell them when bus service might resume. and connecticut governor danell malloy to say when the state's highways might reopen. energetic governors and mayors are best equipped to handle disaster relief because they know their cities and neighborhoods far better than the feds ever will, and they know their citizens will hold them accountable. the feds can help with money and perhaps expertise. the larger liberal fallacy here is that effective government requires bigger government. actually, i think everybody needs everybody but, you know, whatever. >> i think what the world needs now is love, sweet love. so are they saying to the president's opportunistic here? >> making a jab at big government when actually this is the one time the government actually is needed. >> as we said, "the new york times" -- >> do you want to take a look and see if there's more
didn't shy away from criticizing the president's record, he did not mention mr. obama by name. >> we should not continue on the same path, but it's time to take a new path, bold aggressive change. >> reporter: meanwhile, paul ryan and his wife jana spent halloween in their hometown in wisconsin taking their kids trick-or-treating. a maris poll shows a tightening in key states, the president still holds leads in three of them. in iowa, president obama maintains a six-point lead over mitt romney, down from eight two weeks ago. in wisconsin, romney has cut the president's lead in half, he now trails by three points. and in new hampshire, it's basically a dead heat. the president at 49%, romney with 47%. the granite state will be mitt romney's final stop before election day. >> reporter: the schedule tells you everything, the president four times in ohio. he'll be multiple times in wisconsin and iowa these last four days. only one stop each in florida and new hampshire and nevada, matt. >> chuck todd at the white house, let me remind our viewers, election night coverage will come to you
. the obama campaign all romney has done is offered vague policies, that they say are failed from the past. mr. romney is going to seize on the numbers today and fold it into his closing argument speech for the final 9 of hour 96 hours of this campaign. it is a dead sprint. he is going to hit so many places we haven't even been told how many, because they are trying to jam in so many swing states in so many hours. martha: i was talking to chris wallace about their stop in pennsylvania outside of philadelphia and sort of what we can learn from the path right now, obviously wisconsin, obviously ohio, philadelphia also on the list. >> reporter: absolutely. well pennsylvania has been in the blue column and one that president obama won handily against john mccain and mitt romney has not spent a great deal of time. earlier in the summerrer went to the pittsburg area, the coalfields in order to talk about the coal community that makes up so much of western pennsylvania, west virginia, eastern ohio, and it's two things, it's a recognition of the obama campaign's slippage in pennsylvania, as well as in
's approval rating never recovered once he started tanking after his mr. salmond of hurricane katrina. so this is a big risk i think the president obama. he had to show that he was a leader, minimize any damage, look like he's engaged, and by the way, there's no -- how does he do that? he flew back from florida, state of the white house. he was on the phone with governors and mayors all up and down at eastern seaboard all day, monday and tuesday. chris christie, the governor of new jersey to his state was hardest hit by hurricane sandy has made some very favorable comments, a republican who spent a lot of time bashing obama, over the last couple of months, made some really favorable comments about the president. said he deserves a lot of credit for the storm handle but here's a moment in which the president can you show great leadership and an opportunity to sort of demonstrate the power of the white house and the power of incumbency, or he can screw it up and botch everything and end up losing reelection probably because of it. i think he's probably tilting towards the leadership side no
committee and the finance committee. >> moderator: a rebuttal, mr. howell. howell: well, i wish you'd help president obama. this is the very essence of the problem. he's only going to help president romney. ladies and gentlemen, this is what the problem is back there. we've become so isolated. i'm going to work with governor romney if he becomes president or president obama. we have to make sure that we tackle this problem. for 36 years my opponent's been back there, and we haven't had a solution. at ibm if you're in a position and you don't fix something, you're fired, you're terminated, you're done. >> moderator: let's go to our next question. it's from randy parker, ceo of the utah farm bureau. it'll go to mr. howell. mr. parker. >> senator hatch, mr. howell, good to be here. our national debt is clearly a burden on our country and our future financial well being. what do you propose to do to reduce government spending, cut the debt and secure our national security for the future? howell: well, thank you, randy, and i appreciate the farm bureau, and randy was actually one of those that
bill clinton and vice president biden after getting a blast of wind on the tarmac praised obama's presidential decision. >> he got up this morning and called me, said i have to go back, the storm is getting out of hand. i got to handle it. i said, mr. president, that is the right call. >> reporter: romney squeezed in ralliesen avon lake, ohio, and davenport, iowa, before pressing pause on this campaign. >> hopefully your thought and prayers will join with me and people across the country when you think about folks that are in harm's way. we love our fellow americans. wish them well. >> this is the closest election since modern polling began in 1936. with the candidates averaging a 48% to 48%, tie, since september. and in the perfect storm of an election comes this storm, slicing a path through battleground state, north carolina, virginia, ohio, and new hampshire. potentially impacting early voting. and who knows where the recovery from the storm will be one week from tomorrow. thus the candidates are trying to project leadership. >> speaking today with the national weather servi
. a mistake and we should address so that we get this right. >> mr. casey, you have call yourself an independent, but you have voted with the president on the big-ticket items, health care, economic stimulus, the automobile bailout. what areas do you differ with with president obama? >> when you represent a state like ours, you have to make a commitment and have your work reflect the fact you are an independent voice for the people of the state. i think i have done that. when i have made changes to have a stronger health care system or have made make -- moves to create jobs in philadelphia, we could deepen the channel and get bigger ships. in terms of differences, the differences i have had with the president have been fairly substantial. for example, a trade agreement. a lot powerful interests in washington wanted us to have a trade agreement with south korea, columbia, and panama. i voted against all three. one, i thought that pennsylvania would get the short end of that stick. i think we have some history with nafta that did not go very well for our state. another example, the

. this is an interesting idea. i don't know exactly how you'd move it forward, but it is interesting to contemplate. >> mr. king, are you planning to sue -- you said you wanted to sue president obama over the change in policy that young people would not be deported. >> he violated the constitution like gov. vilsack, he cannot do that with memorandum, and this was bogging people down. >> where do you stand on that? >> in the process? there are plaintiffs who won't come on until after the election. i will hold the suit up until after the election and we will get the suit filed. >> the answer is -- we wouldn't have this issue if congress had done their job. one branch doesn't work well and another steps in. i think the president took a necessary step. >> we will see a couple of commercials right now, the first from mrs. vilsack's campiagn. >> i am christie vilsack and i approve this message. ♪ >> mr. king, mrs. vilsack has called you an embarassment to iowa. do some of the quotes embarrass you? >> i've said by the time i eliminated the questions and dishonesty, the only thing left was "i'm christie vilsack
because he thinks president obama is the best person of the job. i don't think general powell is prone to make decisions on people based on skin color. i would agree strongly about the comments made by mr. sununu, even though i used to work under him at the white house. i think people base endorsements on who they think is the best person for the job. i am proud that an african-american is president of the united states. i happen to support mitt romney, and i made that decision based on the facts of what i think are the important issues that move me. i'm sorry that governor sununu made a comment like that. >> listening to what you are saying, joe, where is the outrage from your party about this statement? >> i think there are so many statements made in the closing days of the campaign, nobody is paying attention to the comments. the race is very close, and i agree with governor dean, endorsements don't mean a whole lot. except in a case like this. where the race will be razor thin, the margin of victory may be razor thin. any endorsement is certainly helpful to mitt romney in iowa. >>
. and president obama did a half an hour chat with them, but at the end of it he said, boot way that's off the record. they said, come on, mr. president, we'd like to hear what you have to say. that kind of back fired and did later release it. the big story is conventional wisdom to endorse the president, but they've instead endorsed mitt romney. >> clayton: not since 1972, 40 years, unbelievable. here is what they had to say about the decision to pick mitt romney. our discussion repeatedly circled back to the single most important challenge, getting the economy out of the doldrums and more americans and meaningful jobs with promising futures and the federal government on track to balance the budget in a bipartisan manner which the country demand. which candidate could force the compromises in congress to achieve the goals. when the question is framed in those terms, mitt romney emerges as the stronger candidate and the sentence stuck out for me, the president's best efforts to resuscitate the stumbling economy have fallen short and nothing indicates it would change in a second term. >> st
